Suggestions and Requests / Embed graphics into notes field
« on: January 28, 2013, 09:42:18 pm »
Hi,

Can anyone in Sparx confirm of a feature request to embed graphics directly within the notes field of an element has be logged/raised before ?

I appreciate that you can achieve this via linked documents, but i need the ability to paste a graphic directly into the notes field.

The interesting thing is that i can paste a graphic into the note field now. However it doesn't save.

Regards,

Jon.

Suggestions and Requests / Merging Elements
« on: August 26, 2011, 06:27:21 pm »
Hi,

Coud i request a feature - the ability to merge two or more elements into a single element. I provide governance around models and often find on global projects that individuals wil create duplicate elements in different parts of a model - say the same Component under different packages - EA lacks a feature to merge these into a single component. It would be nice if regular expersions could be used to find/match elements for merging and if one of the elements could be picked as the target.

Thanks,

Jon.

General Board / Instances of elements
« on: October 24, 2014, 08:22:59 pm »
Hi,

I have a library of 'components'. I have multiple views (diagrams) to which I add instances of the components and form relationships between them. Each view shows an alternate implementation. One of the views will be selected as the target. At this point i'd like to add the relationships formed between the instances on the chosen view to/between their underlying instance classifiers.

Is there a way to do this automatically in Sparx ?

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / Shapescripts
« on: May 02, 2014, 09:19:12 pm »
Hi,

Bit of a long shot - but i thought i'd check here before i start...I'm planning to add an embelishment to an element to indicate graphically that it has a linked document.

Does anyone have the shapescript code for a "document" embelishment - i'm after the same embelishment as that used for Artifacts ??

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / Autoatically adding tagged values to Packges
« on: March 08, 2014, 04:41:35 am »
Hi,

I use a template diagram to automatically add tagged values to various object types. This works fine for all objects except Packages.

Any suggestions on how to ensure that a couple of default tagged values are added to packages as users create them. I don't think i can do it via a profile as its the base Package type that i want to add these tag values to.

Appreciate any suggestions/pointer etc.

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / HTML Model document
« on: January 08, 2014, 01:52:27 am »
Hi,

When i generate an HTML Model Document it appears that the top level "Package" in the generated project browser (ie toc iframe to the left of the browser) always has the name of "Project". I can see that this is defined in js/data/root.xml, but i want to set this within Sparx so that the name is something specific (ie "My Process Model"). Is there a value i can set against my <<master document>> package or the contained <<model document>>> class in order to set a default value for the root of the toc ?

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / BPMN Simulation
« on: August 29, 2013, 12:15:57 am »
Hi,

When running a (BPMN) simulation is it possible to access tagged values associated with an activity. Can this be done using the default simulation approach - which appears to interpret code found in the 'behaviour' tab of diagram elements (?) - in which case can i reference a taged value within as this code is being interpreted ? Whats the syntax ? If it can't be done using this default approach - can it be done using a custom script ?

Either way are there any examples/documents the explain how ? The similation example attached to the recent sparx video on the topic doesn't have this sort of detail....

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / RTF templates...
« on: February 26, 2013, 01:47:50 am »
Hi,

Is it possible (using 9.3) to add the name of the root package selected to the title page of an rtf document, followed by a contents page and then a section for each package (including the root package) ? Seems like a fairly typical requirment - but i can't see an obvious way to do this using the rtf report generator....

Any pointer appreciated.

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / Tagged values...
« on: November 27, 2012, 12:50:58 am »
Hi,

I've defined the following in a umlprofile section of an MDG file. I can create "Project" classes and the tagged value is added as expected. However i don't get a calendar when i click on the tagged value (as i'd expect/want), just free text (string).

Any idea why ????


<Stereotype name="Project" metatype="Project" notes="" cx="90" cy="70" strictness="profile">

<AppliesTo>                        
<Apply type="Class">
  <Property name="_Tag" value="1"/>
</Apply>
</AppliesTo>
                                <TaggedValues>
<Tag name="dateRequested" type="DateTime" description="Date of request" unit="" values="" default=""/>
</TaggedValues>
</Stereotype>

General Board / Invocation of an Activity on a BPMN diagram
« on: November 23, 2012, 12:20:30 am »
Hi,

We need to cater for a situion where a given bpmn activity may be executed in multiple regions and each region will have different data in tagged values.

On the face of it we can cater for this by adding a base bpmn Activity to a default/gold standard process diagram, then creating a new diagram for each region and adding an "Invocation" of the activity to these regional diagrams and updating the tagged values as required.

This all works fine, with one small problem. The shapescript associated with the BPMN Activity in the bpmn mdg file is not applied to the Invocation of the Activity, the "Action".

I've tried editing the AppliesTo section in the MDG file to add an Apply type=Action" section...but to no effect.

Anyone got any suggestions ? Is the requirement/question clear ?

Appreciate any help,

Jon.

General Board / Working with multiple versions of a model
« on: August 08, 2012, 08:12:46 pm »
Hi,

I need some best practice advice. We have a large user base of business process modellers. We took the decision to only use a centralised db and built in baselines for our model (as most modellers struggled with the concept of integrated version control and the additional managment steps in entails).

We have a small subset of modellers that need to work on multiple versions of the model. As we use baselines to create versions - this is straight forward. They just baseline their current work and select a previous baseline to work on. The problem is that because we are using a shared db - all users then see the selected baseline. Most users actually want to keep working with the current version.

I did think of setting up version control for the small subset that want to view multiple versions - the problem is that version control flags/data are stored in the shared db - so all users will be asked to configure version control when they connect to the shared model- is there a way around this ?

Any other suggestions / workarounds much appreciated ???

Thanks,

Jon.

General Board / Auditing
« on: June 25, 2012, 10:54:10 pm »
Hi,

I need to figure out which users have been logging into our sparx instance over the last 30 days. We are using a shared SQL server on the back end - but all users are connecting using the same credentials - via some active server magic.

So is there an audit option in Sparx that will record user log ins?

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / SQL query to get baseline names
« on: May 25, 2012, 09:23:41 pm »
Hi,

Does anyone know if the name of baselines is stored in the database and can be queried via SQL ? If so which table contains the baseline name ?

Thanks,

Jon.
